Coming up

SEESAW is built around community. And communities love events. That's why you can expect to see a growing programme of events created by, with and for our members and beyond.

A Family Affair by Tomas Gittins

SEESAW is delighted to present A Family Affair by Poortraits, a Manchester based artist living and working in Macclesfield. 

Exhibiting in the SEESAW cafe bar, it showcases a series of works brought together by their similarity, through the togetherness of the style and the different colour combinations used. 

Specialising in spray work with a street art style, Poortraits uses an abstract style that allows him to let go of emotions directly through the medium of art, portraying his own poor traits through obscure faces. 

23 Sept - 31 Oct 2021

Morning meet-up by Fuse

Fuse is hosting a community meet-up at SEESAW, between 11am and 12pm. For the hour, we're inviting creatives in Manchester to come down to chat, network and have some chill-out time.

Our platform is specifically built for creatives from racialised communities, so we encourage you to register if you are from diverse backgrounds but this event is open for all and completely free.

Ten Years to Save the World

‘Ten Years to Save the World’ is one of the creative commissions supported by the British Council exploring climate change through art, science and digital technology. The project and the exhibition has an urgent message: we have ten years to make the big changes required to save our planet, it’s as simple as that.  

The work, by ten leading comic artists, five in the Philippines and five in the UK, is an incredible showcase for the diversity and power of comics. Crucially, the work has been informed and shaped by young people from both countries, who took part in online discussions to develop the brief for the artists.

A collaboration between The Lakes International Comic Art Festival, Komiket in the Philippines and climate change communications specialists Creative Concern.

1 – 12 Nov, Mon - Fri 9am – 5pm
